This morning, a Delegation led by Senor Carlo Bonfante Olache, State Secretary for Economic Development, and Senor Humberto Jaramillo Rodrigues, Head of the Business Coordinating Council in Tijuana, and Marcello Hinojosa Jimenez, President of CANACINTRA, Tijuana’s Chamber of Commerce for Industrial Development and Growth, visited ABC’s plant to receive a presentation and take a tour of the now 70-plus-acre factory.
The visit was also arranged as an opportunity to ask questions and discuss and learn about ABC’s strategic decisions, investment rationale – USD30million in the past five years – its leadership and management philosophy and business model; also, ABC’s overall approach to client development, industries being focused upon including relatively new ones such as Solar, marketing, customer service and quality, that all taken together have combined to achieve such excellent results.
Wadih Kuri, President and CEO opened the presentation by welcoming Secretary Bonfante Olach and his Department’s team, and Senor Jaramillo Rodrigues and Senor Hinojosa Jimenez, who assisted with coordinating the visit.
There are some pictures that follow taken during the plant tour.
At the conclusion of the tour, and a further detailed question and answer session, Secretary Bonfante Olache said: “Thank you Wadih and all your team who we have met today, and for your hospitality. The factory is impressive as is the energy and enthusiasm of all your hardworking and dedicated staff. Their attention to detail and focus regarding their individual tasks was evident at every workstation.
I am going to take away a very positive impression along with ideas and information that will be of great assistance to the Department as we promote and support local businesses in the State. In fact, I would like to reflect upon what we have seen and learned, and suggest a follow-up meeting next Monday; we can also review and speak further about some of the ideas you have suggested”.
On Monday, 25th April, the Secretary returned for that proposed follow-up meeting along with others from his Department.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”2831,2832,2833,2835,2836,2838,2839,2840,2841,2842,2843,2844,2845,2847,2848,2849,2850″ column_number=”0″ grayscale=”no” images_space=”gallery_without_space”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
